29 weeks



So let's just get something straight. My timing with my pregnancies have been just horrible. Why do I think being full blown pregnant during the hot sure months is a good idea??

I'm 29 weeks this week. The past month, I've just exploded. I definitely can't move around like I used to anymore. My fitness goals have slowed down. And pretty much any goal I had had flown out the window. Haa haa. I'm hitting the " I don't give a crap" phase.  Seriously I'm at a point where I'll deal with the weight and weakness afterwards. I just can't right now.  I've started walking in the mornings, about 3 miles each time. Feeling good but I feel it for sure by night hits.

On top of all this, our family is dealing with the stress of moving and figuring out when and where we are moving. That's always fun. That causes more sugar binges than I'd like to admit.  We will see what next week brings✌🏻️

Banana Bread Cookies



A good friend of mine gave me a mini loaf of banana bread a few days ago. It hit the spot and I wanted to make some with the bananas that were starting to brown. I told Kate that we should make some and then she suggested making banana bread cookies! I told her that it could work out since we have made pumpkin bread cookies the same way. 
So this evening, I gave it a try and they turned out amazing and delicious! I'm trying to stop myself from eating the whole batch!

Wanted to share them with you invade you want to give them a go!

Banana Bread Cookies

1-2 c. Butter, softened 
1 c. Sugar
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas
1/4 c. Sour cream
1 tsp. Vanilla 
2 c. Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Set oven to 350 degrees.  Cream sugar and butter. Then add eggs & bananas and mix well, leaving no clumps.  Then add sour cream and vanilla.
In a seperate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Then add it to the wet ingredients and mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  

Spoon out desired amount of dough onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or silicone cover.  Space about 2 inches apart.  Place in oven for about 14 mins.  Once done, place on cooling rack. And then eat them all before the kids find out you made them 😉

Enjoy!
